Now that the raffle for the self-lacing Nike Mag sneakers from “Back to the Future Part II” has come to a close, we’re learning more about how much money Nike was able to raise for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research.
After a week of donations, the grand total stands at $6.75 million, according to a tweet from actor Fox. This figure includes raffle entries, live auctions, and the donations that were matched by the Michael J. Fox Foundation on Oct. 11, the day that raffle entires closed.
The matched donations make it difficult to pinpoint exactly how many raffle entries were purchased, but Nike’s Tinker Hatfield said that millions entered for a chance to win the shoes.
On Monday, Nike notified the lucky winners of the “Back to the Future Part II” sneakers, and we rounded up a recap of some of the best reactions from winners, losers and hopeful buyers here.
